Catching up with life

A simple thing like noticing my favourite rose in the garden blooming yesterday, has reminded me to appreciate the little things. This is Harry, the Harry Wheatcroft rose. It's the only plant I talk to in the garden, saying "Hello Harry", when I see it flowering for the first time in the season.

Both the girls out at the diving board at the lake. I was apprehensive to let Summer go out there, it's her first time. She was fine!

The last couple of years we've cut a real Christmas tree. We have a new, fake, white tree this year and for as many years as it lasts. Oh and there's my reclined feet in the lounge room. Isabel has sticky taped paper to the wall spelling out "Merry Xmas".

The local show was on earlier this month, with the girls turning 8 and 10 the same weekend.

Life waits for no one.

Cockling at Canunda

November 1st saw the opening of the cockle season in South Australia. As usual we were off to dig and twist in the sands of Geltwood beach in the Canunda National Park for oiur shellfish prize. It has become somewhat of a tradition. 

The drive to the beach is absolutely amazing with the sweeping dunes and spring wildflowers out in bloom. A four wheel drive is a must and it is quite an adventure for adults and kids alike. 

I was excited to see the white flowers of the native muntries out, they are one of my most favourite native flowers.

The ocean here is so powerful, I always feel like I leave something here when I go. I do believe with every pounding of the waves a care is swept from the depths of my mind.  It never lets me leave without taking some of my worries.

Trick or treat, smell my feet...

Trick or treat
Smell my feet
Give me something good to eat

I do recall not so long ago my Mum having a good whinge on Facebook about Halloween not being an Australian thing to do. Lo and behold a few years later, here she is hosting her home as a drop in for kids this year.

It was a hot 35 degrees yesterday as we drove around town dropping in to generous hosts who had put their homes forward in a local group for Halloween.

As usual I donned the face paint too (doh, no photo), with a jokeresque twist.

After our Halloween trick or treating was over, I went straight to doing two bank cleans. God help them if they have recorded CCTV, because they will be quite amused with the face of the cleaner!
